Klay Thompson knocked down three more 3-pointers during the Dubs 135-116 win over the Suns on Friday, adding 15 points, two boards, one block and two turnovers in 27 minutes.
Klay went 6-of-11 from the field in this one, and he would have had a much bigger game if the score weren’t so lopsided. Thompson's numbers are trending up, and he's put in averages of 17.7 points, 2.7 three-pointers, 2.8 assists, 0.7 blocks and just 1.2 turnovers over the past six games, and he should only get better as we get deeper into the season. Through the month of November Klay has performed at a sixth-round level, so the buy-low window remains open for a guy with early-round upside. Nov 28 - 2:49 AM

Klay Thompson struggled against the Lakers on Tuesday, finishing with 11 points on 3-of-12 shooting from the field.

He also added three boards, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers, but it was a little disappointing to see him take a step back after he recently strung together a few good games. Thompson's buy-low window probably opened up a little more after tonight's dud, so feel free to test the patience of his owners in your league.

Klay Thompson knocked down four 3-pointers on Sunday, en route to 21 points, three rebounds, seven assists and one block in 32 minutes.

Mike Malone said prior to the game that the Nuggets' "inability to guard the 3-point line is a joke," and Golden State exploited the weakness by shooting 51.7 percent beyond the arc. Thompson's back is healthy and he's starting to heat up, a welcome turn of events after a sluggish start to the season.

Klay Thompson scored a season-high 25 points against the Clippers on Thursday with three rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He actually played some great defense on Blake Griffin in the post tonight, so that's all the evidence you need to know how healthy his back is -- assuming he is healthy following this game. Thompson was uber aggressive today and his 12 attempts from the line tonight almost doubled his 14 attempts from his previous 11 games. If you bought low in the past week, you're looking pretty smart with Klay trending up.
Nov 20 - 2:31 AM

Klay Thompson (back) will play Thursday vs. the Clippers.

Thompson was limited during Wednesday's practice, but he was never really expected to miss Thursday's matchup against the Dubs California rivals. He should get a healthy heaping of minutes tonight with Shaun Livingston (hip) out, so go ahead and get him active.
Nov 19 - 2:45 PM

Klay Thompson (back) was limited in practice on Wednesday.

He's still fully expected to play against the Clippers on Thursday. Thompson is off to a very slow start this year due to his usage rate dipping from 27.5 last year to 22.7 this year while also struggling with his 3-point shot. He's a buy-low candidate.
Nov 18 - 3:40 PM

Klay Thompson (back) returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Raptors, scoring 19 points on 8-of-19 shooting with three assists, one board and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

Thompson has had a very slow start to the season and was averaging just 15.2 points per game prior to Tuesday's game. He's only been a mid-round asset thus far, but his value will skyrocket once he gets hot from the field. His back injury could explain his slow start, but the buy-low window will close rapidly if he continues to pick it up.
Nov 18 - 1:28 AM

Klay Thompson (back) will play on Tuesday vs. the Raptors.

Additionally, Thompson won't have any restrictions, but coach Luke Walton will keep a close eye on him in case he struggles. Go ahead and get Thompson in your lineups. As expected, Brandon Rush will return to the bench.
Nov 17 - 9:08 PM

Klay Thompson (back) went through Tuesday morning's shootaround, and he remains probable to play against the Raptors.

Thompson said that his back feels good and he's excited to get back on the court for Tuesday's game, and there's absolutely no reason to believe he'll sit this one out. Go ahead and the get the 3-point sniper active.
Nov 17 - 2:27 PM

Klay Thompson (back) practiced on Monday and is probable to play against the Raptors on Tuesday.

The Warriors did not look good on Saturday without Klay and needed overtime to get a win -- also some horrible game management from the Nets. Brandon Rush got the start, but Shaun Livington played the most minutes with the other four starters at 14.4. Leandro Barbosa should also return. Klay has a good chance to play and should be in most weekly lineups. He's also a prime buy-low candidate.
Nov 16 - 3:53 PM

Klay Thompson (back) will not play against the Nets on Saturday.

He's been bothered by back issues since earlier this month and the team will just hold him out tonight. Thompson has started off slow this season, so now he'll be off until Tuesday. As for tonight, the Warriors probably want to keep Shaun Livingston as a backup PG, so maybe Ian Clark or Brandon Rush get the start tonight. Harrison Barnes and Andre Iguodala get boosts here.
Nov 14 - 8:53 PM

Klay Thompson scored 15 points with two rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Wolves on Thursday.

He still hasn't quite busted loose just yet and Stephen Curry raising his usage rate is taking away from Thompson a bit. While he probably won't be quite as good as he was last year, there's still a very good chance Klay can be a top-20 player this year. There's still a nice chance to buy low here.
Nov 12 - 11:19 PM

Klay Thompson's slow start continued on Wednesday, scoring eight points on 3-of-9 from the field with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

Besides awful shooting, it's not a bad line. Thompson is playing through a back injury and the Warriors might want to take it easy on him in the second game of a back-to-back set against the Wolves on Thursday. Of course, you have to start him as long as he's active.
Nov 11 - 11:38 PM

Klay Thompson (back) said he shouldn't have played against the Pistons on Monday.

Thompson scored a season-high 24 points on Monday, but admitted after the game that he should have sat with a balky back. "I did, honestly. I really did," Thompson said when asked he thought he was going to sit. "Maybe I should have, too, because why play hurt? I should have, honestly. But I played through it. And now I’m back to being pretty healthy. In retrospect, I probably should have sat out to get it right." It sounds like Thompson is feeling better and should be activated in all fantasy leagues as he could be at the start of a hot streak.
Nov 10 - 12:00 PM

Klay Thompson scored a season-high 24 points against the Pistons on Monday, adding three boards, one assist, two steals and four 3-pointers.

The Warriors are undefeated eight games into the season, and the scary thing about that is that Thompson really hasn't hit his stride yet. Tonight's game was a step in the right direction, and it appears that he is on the verge of going on a little hot streak.
